Jose can sign Lucas Moura upgrade in Angel Di Maria

Tottenham Hotspur are being linked with a move for PSG winger Angel Di Maria and if he were to join the North London club, he could be a serious upgrade on Lucas Moura.

What’s the word?

According to reports emerging from Spain, Jose Mourinho is eyeing a move for the 32-year-old winger and would love to work with him again, having coached him during his time with Manchester United.

The experienced forward is also potentially available on a free transfer, as his contract with Les Parisiens is set to expire at the end of the season, meaning Spurs could begin negotiations with Di Maria now, with the view to signing him on a free transfer in the summer.

Moura upgrade?

If Di Maria were to join, he would surely demand first-team football, having established himself as one of the best wingers in European football during his time with Real Madrid and PSG. Less so with Manchester United.

Would Di Maria be a good signing?

Yes

No

No

The Argentinian was in superb form for PSG last season, contributing eight goals and 14 assists in just 26 Ligue 1 appearances, resulting in an excellent 7.75 rating across the season.

He has also impressed in this campaign so far, having contributed two goals and five assists in just 15 top-flight appearances, resulting in an impressive 7.3 rating.

Therefore, he could definitely be viewed as an upgrade to Spurs winger Lucas Moura, who has managed just one goal in 13 Premier League appearances this season, in which he has averaged a disappointing 6.28 rating.

The Brazilian has averaged just 0.4 shots per game in the top-flight, compared to Di Maria’s 2.2 shots per game so far this season, so it is clear that the 32-year-old could add much more of a goal threat.

How much did Pochettino pay for Eric Dier?

Considering Spurs have been so reliant on Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son for goals and assists so far this campaign, signing Di Maria could be a game-changer for Mourinho, as it would take the pressure off those two and add some real quality on the wing for the North London club.

Therefore, Daniel Levy must do everything he can to sign the £25.2 million-rated 32-year-old.
